Borrower's quote

In order to provide for myself and my husband, I work in retail. I have a retail outlet at the local market where I sell children's clothing. I get along well in this business, since I have been doing it for three years already. In order to increase my working capital, I need to bring in new seasonal merchandise. I am looking for a loan with this goal in mind. I want to buy a collection of seasonal children's clothing for resale. I am hoping very much for your support.

Rates and transparency

  • This loan does not pay any interest to the lender.
  • Following your loan commitment, you have 7 calendar days to assert your right of withdrawal, by mail at contact@microworld.org.
  • The MFI will reimburse the lender in case of default of the entrepreneur but there is no guarantee or insurance given by the MFI.
  • 100% of the money collected is sent to the MFI, even if the project is not fully funded on the site.
  • The MFI then makes a loan to the micro-entrepreneur and charges an interest rate in order to cover its operational and financial costs.
  • The beneficiaries have been well informed about the risks of over-indebtedness and the consequences of payment default.
  • The platform earns a commission from the MFI for the service it provides, which helps to fund its running costs.
  • More effective than a simple donation, micro-credit promotes long-term sustainable economic development rather than short term help.
